I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Politics, puppy dogs, and passion, oh my!
When his Republican opponent outs him with a photo in a Facebook post, Senator Samuel Dalton doesn’t have many options open to him. It doesn’t matter that the photo is totally innocent. He has no choice but to come clean… until his staff suggest putting a spin on it that leaves Sam reeling.
Sure, he’ll end up with a lot of sympathy, not to mention the possibility of more voters from the LGBT community, but it still seems a pretty drastic solution.
Now all they have to do is persuade Gary, the other man in the photo, to play along. It sounds so easy: convince the constituents of North Carolina that he and Sam are engaged.
No big deal, except for the fact that they’ve only just met….
THIS!!! I had starry heart eyes from the beginning to the end!!! Loved it.
This is my absolute favorite of the Dreamspun Desires series. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I was smiling and enjoying Samuel and Gary. Loved their fake relationship. It was everything I could ask for. A few of the Dreamspun Desires books have left me feeling underwhelmed and I’m not to familiar with K.C. Wells work either, but this was A+.
This was a lite, low angst, sweet, sugary feel good story. I guess I read it at the right time. I loved all the characters of the story. I think Samuel and Gary were perfect for each other. Anytime anyone mentions Will & Grace, then you have a friend in me. Senator Samuel is in the middle of a primary campaign when an innocent photo of him hugging his employee is blown out of proportion.
It forces Samuel to come out the closet. Something he had no plan on doing. Gary is given an offer he can’t refuse. What happens next is the sweetest story ever. I swear this book forced me to watch Love Actually. I was super enamored by these two, that I didn’t want it to end at all!
I like the gradual incline of the relationship. I kinda wish we learned or some more of Gary’s life. I get it Samuel was the one everything revolved about, but those little morsels that we learned about Gary forced me to think about him and see him in his setting. I would loved to see him at school, or amongst peers when Samuel shows up. I did like them getting together talking, and falling for each other. This one seemed to just happen. I think the author did a fantastic job on letting the story unfold and be magical all by itself. Super happy with this edition. I might just grab the next in the series.
